Kolkata:  Despite of facing four back to back losses in the IPL 2018, SunRisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper batsman Wriddhiman Saha feels that they can change their fortune in a matter of ‘two-three overs” against Kolkata Knight Riders in the second playoff at the Eden Gardens tomorrow.

“We have forgotten the past. We have been told to forget the last match and get ready for this match. We are not thinking about the four losses. We know that two-three overs can change the course of a game in T20,” Saha told reporters on the sidelines of their practice at the Eden Gardens.

Kolkata may be overwhelming favourites to seal a final berth but Saha said they are ready for any situation.”We started off well. We could not win because lack of finishing ability. We will play to win tomorrow without thinking of the consequences.”

In Rashid Khan and Shakib Al Hasan they have got arguably the best spin attack as Kolkata will also employ full force in their spin troika of Sunil Narine, Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla.

But Saha is not convinced of an upcoming spin-duel tomorrow.”We are not banking on the conditions. It may turn out that wicket behaves differently tomorrow. We are ready for any situation.

“We have played many matches against them. We know their bowling pattern. Ultimately will have to deliver on the field,” Saha said.

Saha has been woeful with the bat this season with 87 runs from 10 matches at an average of 12.42 and a shoulder injury.

In his absence Saha’s Bengal teammate, Shreevats Goswami has featured in five matches with little success (47 runs from five matches).

“Maybe I was not up to the mark and could not deliver that affected the middle-order. The effort is there to come out of it and back among runs,” a determined Saha said.
